I needed help filing for taxes and I had a bit of a complicated tax situation as I live and work abroad and after posting the job, Shane responded and quickly began working on my tax refund and literally completed everything in about 24 hours! I couldn't be happier with the attention and service and it was easy working for him even from an entire ocean away! This is definitely not the last time I'll be going to him for my accounting needs, highly recommended!

We actually had Annette Hoffstatter as our tax preparer. She was able to get us in quickly (since the deadline was closely approaching) and complete our taxes in just a few days. She sat with us to learn of our financial situation and ensure us the largest reimbursement we qualified for.

The best tax preparation ever !!! I had to find a new tax preparer since my tax accountant of 30 years retired. I have been extremely impressed by Rockwall Advisors. The service was excellent. Accurate, fast and reasonably priced. Everyone was very professional and courteous. I could not have asked for better and would highly recommend Rockwall to all my friends.

I had past due taxes from California, current taxes from Florida, recently separated and in the middle of child custody; Needless to say, I had no idea where to begin with my handful of W2s from two different states, as well as my new life arrangements. Nation Wide Tax was very professional and knowledgeable and was able to help me in a timely manner. Without a doubt I will be a returning customer for next years tax season. I strongly recommend his services.

Jessica Meyer is my hero! She was exactly the professional I needed when I needed one most. I am thrilled to announce she is my new accountant. She went above and beyond the call of duty to make sure a crucial deadline was met even though I came to her at the last minute when I couldn't rely on my former CPA’s office. I got behind on my bookkeeping after our move last year and so my books weren’t ready as the deadline approached. I was staring at a huge mountain to climb, a seemingly impossible deadline and I got zero sympathies​ from my CPA’s office. So, I frantically looked for a tax consultant online and was thrilled to find Jessica of Booksmart on Thumbtack in a matter of minutes. She kept me sane during a very anxious process and empowered me to keep going when I felt unequal to the task. She made me feel as though I was the most important client in the world! To my former CPAs I was just a number (pardon the pun!) and a meaningless and unappreciated one at that. Good riddance! Tax preparation is never fun, but thanks to Jessica's support and guidance, I was thrilled with our accomplishment and I could not be happier with the outcome. Jessica demonstrated knowledge and expertise with infinite patience and respect. How refreshing! She was able to e-file my personal and corporate returns with time to spare. Never even having met her, she treated me as a cherished friend. Everyone should feel as great about their accountant as I feel about Jessica. If you’re not thrilled with your accountant for any reason or you feel as though you’re being over-charged, remember, there are options. Booksmart may be the answer for you, too. Thank you, Jessica. And thank you, Thumbtack for helping me find her so quickly. With gratitude, Norayda – NZoneFL.com

I used Oaks Accounting for both my business and personal returns. Not only did I save on my tax bill, but I also learned how to better structure my business and manage my finances! The service was timely, efficient and much more insightful than I'd bargained for. Most importantly, it was accurate and I didn't feel like I was being taken advantage of for what I didn't know. I highly recommend!

Ms. Richards has prepared my federal taxes for the past 2 years. She's extremely thorough & goes above and beyond by asking me more questions than any other accountant ever has, to try to find all avenues of deductions to get me the best return possible. I will definitely use her next year as well for my federal tax preparations. -H Talarchyk

I had a bad audit from the IRS and was in serious trouble. I didn’t know what to do and who to turn to. I did my research for about a whole week until I settled with Legacy Tax Resolution Services. They told me in detail about some similar cases they had worked in the past and what kind of a strategy they’d be using for me. I felt confident enough so I decided to put my trust in them. In the end, they worked out a better deal with the IRS than I could ever have hoped for. Thanks Legacy Tax Resolution Services, you’ve got yourself one happy customer!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Who can file my taxes?

Any individual with a preparer tax identification number (PTIN) is eligible to file your income taxes on your behalf. However, this doesn’t necessarily mean they will be the best candidate to provide the help you need with your income tax preparation. The IRS explains that CPAs, attorneys and enrolled agents are all allowed to legally represent their clients before the IRS. They have a more thorough understanding of tax code than an individual operating solely with a PTIN or an Annual Filing Season Program participant who provides their services on a volunteer basis. Consider the complexity of your tax return and what level of expertise you’ll require. Before entrusting someone with your private financial and personal information, do some research on their qualifications. The IRS has a searchable database where you can verify the background and credentials of your income tax preparation professional. Once you have selected someone, ask about their service fees and confirm their availability. Then provide them with all the documentation they require, including W-2s, 1099s and more. Always ask to review the paperwork before it is submitted, and never sign a blank tax return.

How much does it cost to get taxes done?

Hiring a professional to help with income tax preparation can be priceless. Pro help can mean no mistakes and a maximized tax return. The cost to get your income taxes done depends on the professional you hire. Tax attorneys or in-demand CPAs will often have the highest rates for their services. Next in the pricing tier are enrolled agents, who will usually have higher rates than individuals solely working with a preparer tax identification number (PTIN). Nationally, the average cost of income tax preparation ranges from $150 to $190. Income tax preparation prices can also vary based on where you live and the complexity of your tax returns. Here are some examples of average income tax preparation prices from an enrolled agent:  

  • Taxpayers filing only a W-2 tax form: $50.
  • Taxpayers filing a W-2 along with additional tax forms such 1099-INT and 1098-E: $150.
  • Taxpayers with several tax forms and one or two additional considerations such as a rental property, investment transactions, K-1 income, 1099-MISC or a simple small business: $225.
  • Taxpayers with multiple activities (rentals, K-1 income, small business, etc.), several stock transactions and more: $395.

Nationally, the average hourly rate nationally for a tax prep professional ranges between $150 and $450.
